Labour East Finchley Councillor, Arjun Mittra, has asked Barnet Council's environmental health team to take action against a fly-tipped private car park in East End Road, behind a shopping parade that includes Iceland and Budgens on East Finchley High Road.
Environmental health visited the site on 10 February and have served a notice on the freeholder asking them to clear the site within 14 days.
Cllr Mittra said:
"The owners of the site made an application to develop it into housing which was refused by the council after strong objections by local residents. The owners then erected a fence around the middle of the site, enclosing nothing but preventing the site from being used for car parking or for deliveries to Iceland and Budgens.
"The fenced-off area is attracting all sorts of dumping and fly-tipping. It is unsightly and probably a health hazard. If the owners don't clear the site within 14 days the council should clear the site and bill the owners."
Local resident Claire Farrier also expressed disappointment. She said:
"It's such a pity this site has been allowed to deteriorate like this - especially after local councillors have worked so hard to improve the nearby major junction by fixing kerbs and pavements and getting graffiti removed."
